If you’re going to lie/make stuff up in a (vice-)presidential, you should probably try to be sneaky about it. If a newspaper makes a comment like this about you:
That’s where Joe Biden, speaking with the pompus self-importance befitting his 36 years in the Senate, told one baffling fib after another.
…that’s when you know you didn’t get away with crap. It starts out with an admirably snide comment,
Some, of course, were just Biden being Biden. He smeared Dick Cheney as “the most dangerous vice president we’ve had probably in American history.”
To which we must take specific offense: After all, the founder of this newspaper, Alexander Hamilton, was killed in a duel by then-Vice President Aaron Burr. (Certainly Burr was a better shot than Cheney.)
Our friends at RedState would like to remind us that Burr was also involved with a treasonous conspiricy which was supposed to culminate in secession. The post goes on to list several of Biden’s untruities and finish off with this:
Then there was what might have been the biggest head-scratcher of the night. Said Biden of the Bush administration’s supposed Middle East follies:
“When . . . along with France, we kicked Hezbollah out of Lebanon, I said and Barack said, ‘Move NATO forces in there. Fill the vacuum, because if you don’t, Hezbollah will control it.”
Assuming that Biden was referring to when, in 2005, American and French pressure helped the Lebanese people kick Syrian troops out of Lebanon, who ever thought NATO occupation of that deeply divided country was a good idea?
Hmm… yeah, Hezbollah is still a big deal in Lebanon. We never kicked them out, Israel never kicked them out, and France never kicked them out.
The NY Post’s question, though, is apparently Joe Biden. He wants to be co-leader of the free world, yo.
